'Good Morning America' Gets New Studio, Director
ABC’s Good Morning America is getting a makeover, both inside and out. Not only does the show have a new director, but in September they’ll have a different studio.
The show’s director, John D’Incecco left for a job directing ABC’s new daytime show The Chew, which will premiere on September 26.
D’Incecco’s position is going to Jeff Winn, GMA Senior EP James Goldston announced in a note obtained by TV Newser. Winn is the executive director for ABC News, and will also keep that title.
GMA will also be changing locations, moving out of their upstairs location to a renovated studio on the ground floor in the Times Square building.
“It will enable us to move seamlessly from segments inside to outside, and sometimes to do segments that involve both inside and outside elements,” Goldston wrote. The new studio will debut September 6.
In January 2011, the show had vacated the ground floor studio as a cost-saving move.
